Next generation sequencing technologies have become affordable for most plant breeding programs. In this study we sequenced the entire genome of the Solanum lycopersicum L. cultivar Caimanta and S. pimpinellifolium L. accession LA0722 with assembly relative to the Heinz 1706 reference version SL2.50. We present 1) analysis of the amount and distribution of polymorphism in “Caimanta” and “LA0722”, 2) examination of alleles in candidate genes affecting disease resistance, fruit shape, fruit weight and fruit quality and 3) development of molecular markers to construct a genetic linkage map based on a F2 population. A total of 1,397,518 polymorphisms were detected in the comparison between “Caimanta” and “LA0722”. A resistant allele for Rx4/Xv3 was detected by sequence, and confirmed through inoculation. We developed a set of insertion/deletion (InDel) DNA markers that can be multiplexed and scored using easily accessed genotyping platforms. These markers were used to construct a genetic linkage map. We demonstrate that the whole genome sequencing of parental lines can be successfully used to reveal phenotypes and characterize a reference population through easily accessed genotyping strategies.
